About this talk

Any discussion about storage systems is incomplete without the mention of Throughput, IOPs, and Latency. But what exactly do these terms mean and why are they important? Collectively, these three terms are often referred to as storage performance metrics. Performance can be defined as the effectiveness of a storage system to address I/O needs of an application or workload. Different application workloads have different I/O patterns, and with that arises different bottlenecks, so there is no “one-size fits all” in storage systems. These storage performance metrics help with storage solution design and selection based on application/workload demands In this webinar, we’ll cover: • What storage performance metrics mean – understanding key terminology nuances • Why users/storage administrators should care about them • How these metrics impact application performance • Real-world use cases
